Game Blake Comeau Jersey The state of Texas now has two winning NFL quarterbacks who wear No. 4.
Game Ben Roethlisberger Jersey
Deshaun Watson got the W in his first pro start Thursday as Houston topped Cincinnati 13-9. Watson’s 49-yard run in the second quarter was the game’s only touchdown.
Now, don’t get it twisted: It’s way too early to say Watson will match Prescott as NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Watson has a way to go before he can approach Prescott’s proficiency, and Watson doesn’t have the supporting cast Prescott enjoys in North Dallas.
Still, Watson showed enough big-play ability Thursday to make people think he can be a winner in the pros, and as his throwing improves, he can become a dual threat similar to Prescott.
Which means that with 4 and 4 around, Lone Star State fans should enjoy some great debates over the next few years.
Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers quarterback: By no means, no way shape or form, was there any disrespect intended toward our troops and those that serve this country. We all have the utmost respect for them, obviously. They give us the freedom to play this game. Last night, obviously with all the issues going on if you will, we had a players’ only meeting after the team meeting last night. We decided we were going to talk about what we were going to do because we knew some guys wanted to take a knee, guys wanted to stand.
We said whatever we do, we need to make sure we are unified as one group because that’s what we are about and that is what it should be about. Staying together as one unit, one group, one brotherhood, things like that, so rather than having one guy kneel, one guy stand, the conclusion was made by everybody that the best thing to do was to stay in the locker room and show respect that way. Roethlisberger was not on the field for the anthem, along with most of the Steelers.
